Enjoyed a pre show drink in the up stairs lounge and then enjoyed a wonderful seat location and great show ie Brendan Coles Night To Remember! We travelled by car and used the car park beside the Hilton reasonably priced... More

I visit events in the Warefront Hall reasonably often. My most recent visit was to the opera. The concert halls are put to many uses which is great for Belfast. The bar on the first floor ' Bar One' has fab views of city and the river Lagan. The drink is reasonably priced ( a mini bottle Sauvignon blanc £4.40)... More

Have been a few times to watch comedy shows including Jimmy Carr. Comfortable seating with good views & acoustics from the stage. Nice bar area with views over Belfast. Friendly & efficient staff. Car-parking in Hilton multi-story beside the venue.

I have been to the Waterfront many times. Every time I have got an upstairs (comfortable) seat and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. However when I was putting on a performance in March, I found it extremely difficult to navigate back-stage. It is designed so that there is one circular corridor per floor with nearly ALL the dressing rooms coming... More

Good venue in City Centre. The acoustics are great, the auditorium is well tiered, so everyone should have a good view and the seats are comfortable. There is a small gift shop, a restaurant which I believe has limited opening hours, and a couple of bars on different levels. The restaurant and bars have floor to ceiling windows overlooking the...

Saw Milton Jones here and had a great night. Sound, lighting and staging seemed to go off without a hitch so that we could concentrate on the act. Well organised, friendly staff, very helpful when they realised we had someone with us with limited mobility. Would use again.

I went to see Placebo here tonight with 2 friends, and even though the band were pretty good the venue was not. You can't take drinks into the auditorium, so if you want to quench your thirst you have to miss some of the show you've paid to see while you take a drink. Further to that, they impose a... More

Attended an 'Australian Pink Floyd' concert in the Waterfront recently. As usual the band were top class and I couldn't find fault with the venue either. The acoustics were stunning and, even though there was a full house, it still felt intimate. The tiered seating ensured a great view of the stage with no annoying backs of heads in the... More
